Puccini’s tragic masterpiece Tosca returns to the Royal Albert Hall with the magnificent production that thrilled audiences and critics alike when it was first performed in February 1999. This spectacular staging, directed by David Freeman with majestic designs by David Roger is brought to you by the same team who created Madam Butterfly and will be sung in English using Amanda Holden’s translation. A distinguished cast of soloists accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by Peter Robinson.

Set in the period of the Napoleonic wars, Tosca is based on true events which unfolded in Rome during a period of great turmoil. Puccini put his heart and soul into this story of political intrigue and doomed love. The three principal characters. Tosca, a famous singer, Cavaradossi, an artist and her lover and Baron Scarpia, head of the secret police who is one of the most evil of operatic villains, are all finely drawn in Puccini’s sublime score.
